List of anime franchises by episode count

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of anime series by franchise series total episode count for series with a minimum of 200 total episodes in the franchise, including original-based television series, un-rebooted OVAs, original-related television specials, and close-related films of origin. The series in the list combine all episodes in a franchise series within the original work or original text regardless of series subtitle. For example, even though each individual Sailor Moon series has a different title, they are all combined into one total for this list.

Series[edit]

The series are initially listed with the highest count at the top, though the table is sortable by column.
